2.5 Gallon Wet/Dry Vac


Portable mini-vacuum

After living in a house with 3 animals for a while, I started to notice the usual hair balls scattered around. I needed a very light, powerful vacuum that could reach corners easily.

I tried a hand-held dustbuster type, but found that its incredibly small storage and lack of any useful way to hold debris inside was just a bad design. After investigating those “Shark” or small Oreck vacuums, I found their prices were much too high and their design didn’t look very impressive either, so I passed.

I found my dream machine in the 2 Gallon Stinger Wet/Dry Vac for less than $30. What you get:
Lots of sucking power, very easy to dump out debris, lots of capacity, very light and easy to move around, gets into tight spaces, and much less expensive than those premium models! AND, it will pick up both dry and wet material, as the name implies!

This really is the perfect convenient vacuum for quick clean-ups. And at half to a third the price of those premium models, you can’t go wrong.
